I am considering installing Syncman to solve a huge headache. I
currently use Mobile Me to share contacts with my wife, and I use
Gmail for all my work email. So, I'm hoping to use Syncman to allow
me to send a one-way directional version of my contacts to Gmail.

Does Syncman have known issues in functioning alongside Mobile Me?

Hi Stephen,

I've bcc'ed you to this message since I fear that quite a few people
write to the group and then never check again if it takes me any time
to respond. I'm considering going to a pure email support system
because of this... anybody have any opinions about that?

Anyways, to your question...

As far as I know there are no issues with using both MobileMe and
Syncman. Especially your case of a one-way sync from Address Book to
Gmail should be completely fine. Of course, when doing any kind of
synchronization it's *highly* recommended to back up your Address Book
from time to time. ;-)

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Jeff

Thanks! One of the main reasons I'm considering Syncman, in addition
to the low price, is your quickness of responding to people. Thanks,
Jeff!

I actually like the Google Groups forum. It allows people to search
past messages to see if their's has already been answered. You'd lose
that with a purely email system.

I know that some Google apps allow for a user to set a notification,
and I think users could do that with Google Groups...the only
downside, of course, is that they have to set it. Probably many would
forget to do that when they posted a message?

That's true. On the other hand, I think a well maintained and
searchable FAQ might be even better as I can make the 'definitive'
answer to common questions very easy to find.

I've also just created an @wateree twitter account for quick updates,
questions, and whatever else comes from it. We'll see how that goes.

Cheers,
Jeff
